Rockwall proudly calls itself the “Live Music Capital of North Texas” because so many live concerts are presented here all year long and so many thousands of people attend them

From recording stars Little Texas, Little River Band, Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels and Grammy award-winning Brave Combo to Pat Green, Jerry Jeff Walker, Emerald City Band and Jolie Holliday, plus Rockwall’s own Jason Castro and Amber Carrington, hundreds of entertainers have performed at Rockwall venues over the past few years for tens of thousands of fans.

Concerts By The Lake

An average of nearly 5,000 people now attend free, family-oriented “Concerts By The Lake” each Thursday evening from 7:30 – 9 p.m at The Harbor, from early April through late July.

You’re invited to bring your own food, drinks, chairs and blankets, but please clean up afterward.
